18. An Introduction to Sketch-Based Interfaces

Half Day, 8:30 am - 12:15 pm
Level: Beginning
Room 157

Sketch-based interfaces are a natural, pencil-and-paper-like approach to interacting with a variety of applications, including conceptual modeling, animation, and note-taking systems. This course offers an in-depth discussion of sketch-based interface design, ranging from simple gestural commands to complex sketch-understanding systems. Attendees will learn how these interfaces are designed and how to develop their own.

Knowledge of basic concepts in human-computer interaction and/or user interfaces. Interest in understanding how sketch-based interfaces work.

Intended Audience
Anyone interested in learning about sketch-based interfaces, especially researchers and user-interface designers.
